For health class today, we were discussing attitudes between children and their parents.  We had to read a cartoon about a girl and her mother having a fight and then learned how they resolved their conflict.

I said to my girls… “I think it’s really great that I hardly ever have any conflict with you girls.  You always seem to do what you’re told and I never seem to have a problem with either one of you.”

Then I decided to ask them why they always behave so well.

Brianna said, “Because mom… we know better than to get you upset with us.”

I said, “Why, do a rule with an iron fist?”

Brianna said, “Yes mom, you really do, but at least you rule us with a cute, adorable, iron fist.

Such a sweet talker she is!  Lol…  😉

Life and the unsteady leap…

“Life is sometimes like stepping onto an escalator.  The only way forward is to just sort of take an unsteady leap, all while hoping and praying you don’t trip and fall.”  ~M

Worlds of wonder…

So keep writing!  😉

#MidnightMadness – 10/11/2017

I was busy writing in my office tonight, when my little Auti charged through the door and announced that she had a huge surprise for me.  She proceeded to drag me out of my office, through the living room, and then stopped me right in front of my bedroom door.  I was told to shut my eyes, and was then led into my bedroom where our family computer resides.  I was finally told to open my eyes and have a peek.  This is what was on the computer screen, written just for me…

Dear mommy I love you and I want to say you’re the best I love you and you love me every day is the best with you and I think you think the same thing I hope you’re doing well so I love you hopefully you enjoyed reading this as I loved writing this have a wonderful night from: autumn ;-D

This was just the sweetest note I could ever receive!  I think perhaps we need to work on her punctuation a bit, but there was no way I was going to point that out when her big blue eyes were staring up at me, looking for approval.  She’s currently in my bedroom again, writing poetry and yelling for me to come and take a look.  So I mustn’t keep her waiting!  Sounds like it’s a Christmas poem this time!  Lol… 😉

The importance of compassion…

“There have been many over the years, who have been downright mean, and who have repeatedly mistreated me.  But they are also the very same ones, who have taught me the true importance of showing compassion and kindness to all.”  ~M

Love and friendship…

“Never forget that love and friendship go hand and hand. So don’t be afraid to tell your friends you love them. After all, it could be the only time they ever get to hear those heartfelt words.” ~M

In a recent conversation, my 16 yr old daughter said this…

“Mom, I’m such a weird teen.  Most kids my age are off partying, and here I am sitting here with you, pondering the philosophical meaning of life.”  

I almost died from laughing so hard.  Lol… 😉

Matters of the heart…

I’m craving a hot drink right now and once and awhile I crave a stiff drink, and when a woman says something like this, you have to kind of wonder what she means by that.  😉

Sorry… it’s midnight.  I get silly this time of night.  Lol…

I saw this on a church sign a couple of months ago and thought it was quite funny.  The sign said…

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

I was thinking about the many ways this could be interpreted, and it’s still making me laugh.
